Help Cure Childhood Cancer

September is 
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September 13th is Childhood Cancer Awareness Day.  Gold is the official color for Childhood Cancer.  There are a couple things you can do if you would like to be part of this.  If you haven't signed the petition for childhood cancer you can click here to sign the petition to help raise awareness.  More awareness = more research funding $$$$.

I recently joined a group called People Against Childhood Cancer.  (PAC2)  If anyone is interested in joining, especially you cancer parents.  But is open to anyone such as family and friends of children who have had or are fighting this horrible disease.  The new chair of the CureSearch Board of Trustees has joined,  along with David Loeb, a pediatric oncologist at John Hopkins.  Check out his blog if you are interested at Dr. David's Blog.  Laurian, a regional coordinator for Make A Wish has also joined.  

If you would like to join the People against Childhood Cancer Group, click here
You can forward this to anyone you think may be interested in joining.

Chili's Restaurant is hosting events nationwide in support of Childhood Cancer and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.  Visit your local Chili's or go here to see how you can help.

I will be posting more information about Childhood Cancer Awareness during this month.
Thanks to all of you who are helping make awareness happen!

Kelly and Kathy,
I am so glad that you are supporting the cause and encouraging others. As soon as school starts I was thinking of starting a fundraising website so people can donate money. I might ask Becky to help with some at school fundraising too. I would love it if you both and Meaghan would help me get that started. My mom and I have wanted to start something for a long time. Call me anytime.
